Brian Kelly, Eagles to meet again, according to ESPN

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

Many thought the Notre Dame head coach was using the Eagles as leverage for a raise, but he's reportedly set to meet with Philly again this weekend.

Notre Dame Fighting Irish head coach Brian Kelly is set to meet with the Philadelphia Eagles again this weekend, according to ESPN. Kelly interviewed with the Eagles this past Tuesday, one day after Notre Dame lost to Alabama 42-14 in the BCS Championship Game.

It's tough to tell at this point whether Kelly is legitimately interested in making a jump to the NFL, or whether he's just looking for leverage to get a raise at Notre Dame. Both Oregon's Chip Kelly and Penn State's Bill O'Brien ended up going back to their respective schools after interviewing with the Eagles. Former Syracuse head coach Doug Marrone also spoke to Philadelphia, but ended up taking the Buffalo Bills job.

Despite ending the season on a sour note, Kelly is 28-11 in three seasons as the head man at Notre Dame, and coming off an undefeated regular season, so it's easy to see why an NFL team would be interested.
